be mildly amused that so much of us spend so much in the energy and acknowledgment and the meaning of the cherished day. the reaction is not benign amusement or scorn or indifference. it is angry and venomous and high volume rage. it is like they're afraid it would be true. if they thought it was a fairy tale and thought it like what they claimed it to be. they would be unmoved by our waisting time and energy and money over it, they would be glad we extended so much effort on something that was utterly meaningless . the degree of hosility is a sign of fear. you don't fear a stuffed bear in the musime. but you would fear an eight foot tall grisly bear that you had growling inches from your face. people who think that god is dead and the birth of jesus is for coward and weaklings. they would react in our christian observances . some curiosity and no real eal reaction or fear . when i see the vicious and irerational reaction?we have holiday trees instead of christmas trees. no. i am made to feel that it must be mighty powerful to elicit that response so that a person would be scared s
is meaningless and useless, if they thought that, merely be mildly amused some of us spend so much energy in the acknowledgment, celebration and meaningness of this day. and the action is not benign amusement, not scorn and most certainly not indifference. it's angry, venomous and high volume rage, as if the opponents of christmas are afraid that the whole story might just be true. because if they really thought it was a fairy tale and felt like the fairy tale they claimed it to be. they not only would be unmoved by some of our wasting our time, energy and money over it, they'd actually be glad that we extended so much effort on something that was utterly meaningless. but the degree of hostility with the christmas message is a sign of fear. i mean, after all, you don't fear a stuffed bear in the museum, but you sure would fear an eight foot tall grizzly bear that you met in the woods growling just inches from your face. so, people who think god is dead and that the birth of jesus is nonsense for cowards and weaklings, well, they would react to our christmas observances much in the same wa
, that's the problem, they have struggled to create a meaningful grassroots system within all the energy they have built. there are other groups and examples, unions and move-on, have systems whereby they still crowd source. i think viewers of the ed show know how unions do that, and they do it effectively under attack. this tea party has people getting $8 million payouts. if you're so against government spending, worried about the money at the top, why should dick armey be getting all this cash? >> wow! jay-z spinning ari melbin. >>> the tragic christmas eve shooting in western new york is furthering the gun debate. is new gun legislation in our future? >>> if you haven't heard about the dairy cliff, you'll want to listen up. david k. johnson explains why you could be paying $8 for a gallon of milk if congress doesn't act. copd makes it hard to breathe, but with advair, i'm breathing better. so now i can be in the scene. advair is clinically proven to help significantly improve lung function. unlike most copd medications, advair contains both an anti-inflammatory and a long-acting bronc
need to do is spend our efforts and energy in trying to achieve a plan that will carry us forward. i still am optimistic we can do that. i'm hopeful that we will do it. if we don't do it in the next several weeks before the new year, i hope it is done immediately there after. i think it would be better for the country and economy and people's confidence in the act of this country to make decisions and govern wisely if we were able to make an agreement before the end of the year. and that is still possible despite the u turn from the speaker yesterday. i hope that the discussions continue and prove conclusive. with that i want to thank you for this opportunity and i'll be happy to answer questions people might have. >> we will take questions. the questions will be first from members of the media and national press club members and then if no hands are raised after that we will go to others. >> senator i want to tie some things together in terms of your great, informative powerful knowledge based so speech and ask a question that brings us into focus given current continue verse sis. y
never cared about how i looked. i didn't care how i looked. i was blessed with enormous energy, so i never paid attention. we baptize after every service. about a year ago, i was doing the baptism, and we do it the old fashioned way. i lift people under water and lift them out. on this day, i had 867 people to baptize. it took me about four hours. on about number 500 that i had lowered into the water and pulled up, i had a thought. it wasn't a very spiritual thought. it wasn't a pastor thought. man, we're all overweight. we're all fat. and then i thought, but i'm fat, and i can't expect other people to get in shape if i'm out of shape. the next morning at church, i got up and said, you guys, i need to repent. i said, i have -- i have only gained two or three pounds a year, but i have been your pastor for 32 years. so i need to lose 90 pounds. >> so give me the bullet points of how it works. >> well, i went out and got three doctors, dr. mehmet oz, doctor daniel amen, and dr. mark heyman, and oz said you have to know your height, waist, weight, cholesterol, and blood pressure. we took
energy source is used we more. so, it's kind of, you know, there is a peacekeeping one of these evils. it's just that it personally you try to get rid of the problem and i think it is a bigger problem, and then it goes back to making sure they're somehow done in a better way and pick and choose where you put them. one thing we haven't talked about a very frustrating thing that i learned in this book is that there is no stopping mining the state's road along 1972 the general mining law act that basically was like the homestead act that said get people out west and what they said is you pay $5 an acre on the the federal land and you can mind. right now the companies making billions of dollars are paying $5 an acre to the united states. they are making billions. worse than that there is no royalty. if you mine for oil and gas in this country pay eight to 10% copper, nothing. worse than that the way that it's written we have no ability to say no. nothing so we can't stop it even if we want to i must change it and we can't because congress has enough people from the west and various power sour

in leading this committee. if you have always brought energy and a smile to this committee and we look forward to working together next year and the committee. i would also like to wish howard well as he moves on to the next chapter and i would like to say to both of you, that this committee and the institution is better because of the service on your part. the leadership on your part. and we look forward to secretary clinton testifying next year or next month, and i think all of us want to make sure that at the end of the day, our diplomats are safer and i look forward to working with mr. engel and all the members here. we look forward to making certain that something like this does not happen again. but part of that is making the right policy decisions. part of that goes to policy. and if we look at some of the observations that our ambassador made, he knew that libya had become a cauldron of weapons, of jihad is, of violent ideology. he called it a security vacuum as it develops there. it was discouraging frankly to read his communiquÉs, warning the consequences of this. and discou

in chairing the energy and water subcommittee, which is the committee that handles appropriations for the army corps of engineers, is how really difficult it is to get projects started, funded and constructed. and so i am one, particularly in view of storms, earthquakes, floods, damages, that you also need to do the mitigation because once it happens once, there's a heavy likelihood that it could happen again. so i rise in opposition to this amendment. the provision that the senator from oklahoma proposes would essentially take a project that's authorized, that has gone to the corps for study -- i beg your pardon? the presiding officer: the senator's time has expired. mrs. feinstein: may i ask for two minutes additional time, please. the presiding officer: is there objection? without objection. mrs. feinstein: thank you very much. would essentially take a corps project that has been authorized and the study is being done. once the study is concluded, t the -- and it is cost-effective, the corps proceeds to construction. with respect to mitigation, what this amendment does is, as i understand i
